birthday greeting

March 18, 2011

My brother’s birthday is coming up soon.  I thought I would make a simple greeting to send to him.  All the paper originates from my stash that would otherwise end up in the recycling bin.

I realize it looks very homemade, but it is.  I’m not trying to compete with Hallmark.  There is a better than average chance I’ll be making more birthday and greeting cards with this paper recycling method.

plus, I’m taking a stab at envelope making too.  So much paper waste, might as well put it to use.  Why not?


Thanks so much for reading.

    ” I realize it looks very homemade, but it is. I’m not trying to compete with Hallmark.”

    Nooooooooooo way….it does not look homemade in the least. In fact, it looks better than any Hallmark card I’ve ever seen. And I mean that.

    When I was a kid, I use to make my own greeting cards. I had a dream of having my own line of cards.

    Wonderful job, Diane! You ROCK, girl!

    X to you and Cristybella!

    There is nothing better than a homemade card, in my opinion! I love it, and I think he will too!
    Have a wonderful weekend!
